Maybe next week." We finished all this period and the important issue is that the baby is in very good condition. The mother is strong enough to handle this issue. The father - that's me - is losing his patience. And 'Insh'Allah' - if God wants - I will see the baby. Before, I can go out at 3:00 in the morning, I can return back at 6:00 in the morning. Now, until 10:00 in the morning, I can't. There's no security because it's getting worse. The situation are very... Let's say it's chaos. Also the...ethics completely changed. The manner of behaviour has completely changed. After I forced to get out from my house, I've been informed by one of my relatives to come here, to this place, to register as a refugee. There was an old agreement between the Iraqi Government and the United Nations that Iraq will take the responsibility of Palestinians while they are living in Iraq.

My father came from Palestine when he was five years old and I have all my education here and all my certificate,

even my dialect is pure Iraqi. But, unfortunately, I have no right to take citizenship in Iraq, Iraq citizenship. We are now stateless, homeless, jobless. After 65 years of living in this country, we were re-registered as refugees. I'm supposed to live here between these tents because I have the right to take a tent and put it here and live just like any other, but you can see the circumstances, they are very difficult and very complex. So I'm not ready to bring my family and the new baby born here. I would rather do my best to keep them away from this place and I will try.

Disgln tonne - preaching

hatred calls for a crackdown on

a Sydney Sheikh Feiz Mohammad,

the alpine village of Thredbo

braces for the worst. And it's Australia Day at the Australian

Open. Good evening, Joe O'Brien

with the Late News. Also

tonight - racist taunts, the

reality of Britain's 'Big

Brother' for a Bollywood star.

But first, Australian Federal Police have begun an

investigation into a Sydney

Sheikh Feiz Mohammad who

promotes martyrdom for children

and vilifies Jews on the

Internet and on DVDs. His

views have been condemned by

political leaders and by the Islamic community. Australian-born Sheik Feiz

Mohammed is no newcomer to

of the Global Islamic Youth radical preaching. As the Amir

Centre in Sydney's western

suburbs he's long been known as

a firebrand. What are you

living for! Now a British

documentary has shown children

training his lectures outside a

mosque in Birmingham. In his

death series he rails against

Jews and encourages martyrdom. We want to have

children and offer them as

soldiers defending Islam. Put

in their soft, tender heart the

zeal of jihad and a love of martyrdom. That's raised alarm

in Australia. As I see it

Sheikh Feiz's statements add up

to an incitement to terrorism. The Federal

Government says an

investigation is already under

way. We are particularly

concerned about literature that

can find its way into the hands

of young people and children in

this country. Many Australian Muslims are also

concerned. That needs to be

examined very closely by I

guess the authorities when he

does come back. Sheikh Feiz has

been in Lebanon for the past

year and the sect he belongs to

is shouldn't by Australia's mainstream Muslims.

Representatives of his local

community were today playing

down his influence. This issue
